Students aren’t supposed to use Wikipedia as a starting point in their research, but let’s face it, most of them probably do. Wikiwand is a better way to use the content on Wikipedia with features like a persistent table of contents down the side of the page or the ability to preview in-text links by hovering over the linked words. There are also interactive maps available and most articles begin with a captivating cover photo–great for pulling in the wall-of-text-averse generation.
